Taking Dawn Issues Road Report

Guitarist Mikey Cross of Las Vegas rockers Taking Dawn has issued the following road report from their European tour with Airbourne:

"So far we have played 18 shows all over Europe on the Airbourne tour. They have been pretty fuckin amazing! The badass motherfuckers over here really like to rock! Hopefully when we go back home the USA can keep up!"

"Last night was Amsterdam which was one of the highlights of the trip. I don't know if anyone has ever been to the red light district but what a crazy fuckin place! You walk down the allies and there are windows with hookers in each of them in lingerie. They are usually signaling you over to them for a little sucky fucky. The locals told us we can do pretty much whatever we want with them for 50 Euros. WHAT A DEAL!!!! Hookers in Vegas are a lot more than that! Unfortunately we decided to pass on the sucky fucky this time. Something about seeing a dude go into a room and come out 5 minutes later for another dude to go in just us realize it was probably not the best idea. Besides that..we didn't want to give the hookers all the STDs we got on tour… it wouldn't be fair to them. They are respectable women! Well most of them are respectable women.. except for the ones in the transexual ally.. they are respectable half-women. We were lucky enough to walk down that ally first and I was lucky enough for one of the trannies to show me their dick. As big and wonderful as it was I decided to pass. These bitches were built like fuckin Rambo and we didn't want to get raped… thats not how you want to go out." More...
